ICE CREAM VENDOR ROBBED.
First Sampled His Wares Then Took His Cash.
"Let's have a couple of ice cream cones."
A. Minniear, who drives an ice cream wagon, filled the above order at 10 o'clock last night for one of two men who stopped his wagon on Bales avenue between Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets.
"Now, let's have your cash," the same man demanded as he showed the driver a revolver pointed in his direction. They took $7 in money -- and the cones.
"And they didn't even pay for those cones," Mr. Minniear, who lives at 2561 Cissna avenue, Kansas City, Kas., told the police.
